The goal Introduce students to the Internet architecture and operations, and advanced concepts, protocols and algorithms of several key services on Internet and in contemporary computer networks
The outcome After this course students will fully understand Internet architecture and modern packet forwarding mechanisms. They will be capable to define the network routing policy and to implement it on real network devices. Through the study on network management mechanisms and different Internet protocols, students will be capable to design efficient IT services based on modern network technologies.
